The folks at The Inquirer have gotten their hands on a Diamond press release that seems to suggest a new version of AMD's Radeon HD 2900 XT graphics card will come out on June 14. Unlike the current model, which has 512MB of GDDR3 memory, the new card will supposedly pack 1GB of GDDR4 RAM. And indeed, the first two lines of the purported Diamond press release read, "Diamond Multimedia Announces the World's First 1GB Single GPU Consumer Graphics Card."
Judging by previous rumors we've heard, the 1GB Radeon HD 2900 XT will be the same size as the existing model—it should be no 12"-long behemoth like the R600 board prototypes we saw pictures of earlier this year. Price-wise, a previous article by The Inquirer suggests the 1GB card will cost something slightly north of $500, although nothing official has been announced just yet.
